We had a bit of snow today - just a skiff - and it was lovely. I had a rather productive day....or rather....I did very little work and yet still feel like I made some headway. Which is nice, considering that somedays I work like a dog, and feel as though I've done nothing.
I picked up a few more gifts for no one in particular. These are sometimes my favourite because I find really neat things that may go to someone for a present...but may just be left over on the gift shelf after Christmas - which means I get to keep it!
I've also been reading "Yule" by Dorothy Morrison. It's a sweet little book that runs through the gamut of how Yule is celebrated all over the world, a spot of history, fun facts and superstitions, charms and little spells, recipes, decorations and crafts.
Did you know that it was believed that animals could talk on Christmas eve? And to ensure good health, you should eat an apple at midnight.
And to bless a toy for your kittens:
"Goddess Bast of feline friends,
Your powers to this treat, please lend
I ask you now to bless this toy
And fill it full of kitty joy."
Giggle - I think I'll use this on whatever fun things I get for Daisy and Dex!
Also on the agenda today was working on my meditation exercise for lesson 2 in my online course with C.P. Unfortunately, I didn't sleep well last night so there was a lot of head bobbing and not too much meditating!
I'm still wondering how I will get everything done in time for Yule and then Christmas, along with a move and working on a new business venture. I just need to work on one thing at a time...
I hope all your holiday plans are going smoothly and you are able to take some time to give yourself a break too!
